Fire Door Signs
What fire door signs do I need for my workplace?
In a workplace, buildings are usually partitioned into smaller units to prevent a fire from spreading from one area to another. Fire doors connect these areas, allowing traffic to circulate the building in an emergency. Fire doors serve as both a barrier and an escape route during a fire.
Depending on the building's layout and the potential for fire, each fire door must act as a barrier to smoke and fire.
All fire doors should be kept clear of obstructions inside and outside, must be easy to open and should be clearly labelled. Fire safety signs are mandatory signs and act as a safety notice, usually found near an escape route to warn of the risks in the unfortunate events of a fire. Help free fire exit routes in your premises with 'fire exit keep clear signs' and 'staircase must be kept clear of obstructions'.
Our Fire door sign range are mandatory signs that indicates that something must be done such as 'Fire Door Keep Shut aluminium sign'. Door warning signs feature white text and icons on a blue background.
Can you put signs on fire doors?
Official fire door signs should be put on a specific fire door with the instruction of what action must be taken with that fire door. Fire exit signs displayed on fire doors indicate the door is indeed a fire door, these signs should not be obscured and are vital for the workplace in the event of an emergency evacuation.
All our Fire Safety Signs comply with British Standard BS5499. In addition to specifying the sort of sign to be used, the British Standard also specifies where the signs should be placed, how they should be mounted, how they should be lit, and how they should be maintained.
